International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies


International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (IJMSO)

Publisher: Inderscience Publishing Ltd.

IJMSO aims at publishing research advances and discussions about meta-data
in a broad sense, and about their associated semantics and ontological
structures, from a multi-disciplinary perspective, and with an emphasis on
domain-specific ontologies and organisational, human interaction and social
issues regarding metadata annotation, use and assessment.

It also intends covering Semantic Web research, as a concrete
metadata-intensive technological framework in which shared and standardised
semantics are a critical issue.

The main objective of IJMSO is to provide an open forum in which several
disciplines converge and provide their perspectives regarding the complex
topic of metadata creation, use and assessment. Those disciplines include
Digital Libraries, the Semantic Web, Library Science and Knowledge
Management, among others.

IJMSO publishes original research papers providing significant results, and
also short communications about innovative ideas and news, announcements and
reviews regarding the topics of the journal. Articles describing schemas or
ontologies for concrete applications or domains are also welcomed, provided
that a digital version of the final artefact is submitted to be made
publicly available.
